DAREDEVIL Gtech employees will swap their desks for parachutes in aid of St Richard’s Hospice, Worcester.

Five workers will jump from 10,000 feet on Saturday, June 8 at Hinton Airfield, Northamptonshire.

Vlad Popescu, Philip Harrison, Charles Obah, Tom Cowles and Jeff Jones are hoping to raise funds for St Richard's, which provides care and support for people with serious progressive illnesses and their families.

“We’re all excited, I’m sure the nerves will kick in the closer we get to the day," said Mr Harrison.

“A few of us have jumped before, but we also have some that haven’t and one who is scared of heights – so that should be fun!"

They will take the plunge alongside nine others booked to aid the same cause.

Jodi Brandwood, fundraiser at St Richard’s, said: “We are so impressed with this fantastic team effort and hope everyone has a great day, making memories to last a lifetime."
